THE MUSEUM OF AMERICAN FOLK TOYS"History is not just wars and governments and changes in the way people live. It is people themselves, doing things. And among those people are boys and girls who go to school, play games, and enjoy toys.
Dolls, rocking horse, toys soldiers, marbles, toys from the simplest ball...have existed from remote times. And the people of early America were no different from any other children in history. They had toys: Soldiers, chariots and carriages, little theaters, Noah's arks, dolls, toy kitchens, jacknives, kites, musical instruments,every kind of thing that they or the adults around them could afford or imagine.
To read about the toys American children had...is to find out just how lively the children of the past were and to discover a great deal abou their lives..."
